With Christmas over, we’ve officially reached the homestretch of 2013—and what a stylish year it’s been. Over the past 12 months, a number of notable trends emerged during both on the runways at the fall and spring fashion months, on red carpets across the globe and, of course, on the streets.

Above, I’m compiled 13 of the year’s best, along with a link to shop each piece if possible; otherwise, take a look at some of the (often less pricey) alternatives that are still out there!
